The How To's of Accepting Credit Cards

Date: September 11, 2017

Accepting credit cards can improve cash flow.

Accepting credit cards is necessary for merchants who want to be competitive in their market and grow their business to its greatest potential. The days of cash-only transactions are long gone. New technology has vastly expanded the scope of credit card processing to the point where there are practically no boundaries when it comes to closing a sale.

At TSYS®, we understand that the process for accepting credit cards can be intimidating. That’s why we make it a top priority to educate clients like you on the basics of merchant accounts and credit card processing, and to provide you with the best merchant services and solutions at competitive prices.

Start by educating yourself. Explore our site and click on whatever looks interesting to you. A great place to begin is our Get a Merchant Account section where we lay out everything you need to know about choosing and setting up the right merchant account for your business needs. This important business arrangement between us lays the foundation for accepting credit card payments from your customers.

Our website also offers a wealth of information about all the different types of credit card processing options we offer — point-of-sale retail, internet, wireless, mobile, laptop and by phone — and how they could meet your requirements. We stay on the cutting edge of the secure electronic payments industry to better serve merchants like you.
